He’s been through the Murder House, the Asylum, the Freak Show, and more, but after the Apocalypse, Evan Peters is ready to take a break from American Horror Story. (After all that, it’s safe to say he’s earned one.)
In an interview at WonderCon, the actor said he would “sit a season out,” confirming he will not appear in the upcoming ninth season. Peters has appeared in every previous iteration of the FX anthology.
Details are sparse about AHS‘ next season, though Emma Roberts is confirmed to return with Olympian Gus Kenworthy playing her boyfriend. This is the only casting news thus far, and the theme for the new season has yet to be announced.
Peters will next appear in this year’s X-Men romp Dark Phoenix, reprising his role of Quicksilver. lt’s unclear as to whether or not he’ll be returning for season 2 of Pose, FX’s other Ryan Murphy-Brad Falchuk joint production.
